Having been raised in this community, I can tell you that illegal immigration is NOT a major issue in this tiny timber town in Yamhill county. I find this story quite amusing. it has been getting national attention and even talked about at the daily kos *lmao* If you lived here you would understand where I m coming from, but the media spins it to make us look like we are all a bunch of lunatics.
Now the city of McMinnville (Yamhill county seat) does have immigration issues, the population has been sky rocking and more major businesses have been popping up and I find they are hiring more and more immigrants who can't speak English. If you apply for a county job it is required that you be bi-lingual. It pisses me off. All I want to do is order a damn hamburger and have them get the order right when you tell them what you want they don't freaking understand English!!!!
